Family Getaway Package
Bring your family to Glenorchy, at the doorstep of one of the World's Heritage Sites - Mount Aspiring National Park. Come and discover why Glenorchy has been welcoming visitors for the past 150 years.
Get away and reconnect with your loved ones at Camp Glenorchy. Explore the nature and enjoy the amazing landscapes with your family while creating memorable experiences.
Camp Glenorchy offers the perfect family package, including everything you need, with the flexibility to add more activities to your itinerary, or simply relax with some great company.
We've got you covered
We have included some meals in your package, so you don't need to worry about cooking when you first arrive. We'll have a delicious pre-prepared lasagne and a selection of raw vegetables and hummus waiting for you upon arrival. All you need to do is re-heat it and serve. A continental buffet breakfast is also included, with delicious homemade granola, a selection of spreads, toast, yoghurt, fruits, tea and coffee, and more.
Glenorchy has a few restaurants and cafes, but you will also have access to our state-of-the-art kitchen, where you will love to cook if you choose to do so. You can shop for groceries at Mrs Woolly's General Store next door and cook dinner on your second night. We also have pre-prepared BBQ hampers that you could pre-order and have them ready for you upon arrival. Our BBQs are located outside, beside our Campfire Shelter, with fantastic surrounding mountain views.
Make the most out of your time in Glenorchy
To entertain the kids, we have a big outdoor green area where they will love to play, and an indoor area with a selection of board games in case the weather isn't great. We will also arrange a family movie night one evening, with special sweet treats or popcorn (only with parents consent). Why not get the family together around the sheltered outdoor fireplace, toasting marshmallows, telling stories and watching the sun set behind the magnificent mountains.
Only a short walk from Camp Glenorchy, you will find a big playground, a skatepark and various walking tracks around the lake and the lagoon, where you can spot swans, native birds, and be amazed by the 360 degrees mountain views.
Glenorchy also offers a range of activities that are great for families. You can hire electric or normal bikes to explore the area, visit an animal farm, or go horse riding, ziplining, 4WD exploring, and more. Check out a full list of activities at our Activities page. Our team is happy to advise or book activities for you at no extra booking cost, contact us and we'll take care of it for you.

All of the profits from Camp Glenorchy go to the Glenorchy Community Trust and benefit the local community.

The tour is followed up by a fun kids Trivia to engage the little ones.
In your room, you will also have a tablet controller, where you can see how much energy and water you could save by changing the length of your shower or your room temperature - a great way to start a conversation about sustainability with the kids!

Simply Breathtaking... Words escape me. Or, specifically, words alone can't quite capture the atmosphere, the feeling, and the overall sense of awe one experiences when visiting Camp Glenorchy. It's an Ecological Marvel on every conceivable level and metric. It's Beautifully...
